Stopped by and picked up some more gesso board panels from the art store yesterday. I think I am sold on them now that I have gotten used to painting on them. This is the same pear I painted about three posts back (one of the plastic pieces of fruit I bought a while back). Now that I have started getting the hang of adding linseed oil as a medium I really like it. I didn't fight the paint near as much as I have been. Baby steps. Thanks for stopping by.
